MARTIN PARR PARIS AT THE MEP
For 35 years Martin Parr has been turning scenes of ordinary life into grotesque and surprising scenes that demonstrate human vulnerability. He now invites us to follow him around Paris. The Maison Européenne de la Photographie gave him carte blanche for this series, and for two years he focused on Parisians, photographing the Champs-Élysées, tourists, the 14 July celebrations, fashion shows, the Le Bourget air show, Paris Plage, museums, art fairs, the annual agricultural show, etc. About 60 photographs, some new, some less recent, illustrate Martin Parr’s Paris.
